Reproduction in captive vervet and Sykes' monkeys



Reproduction in captive vervet and Sykes' monkeys



Journal of Mammalogy 56(4): 940-946



Vaginal smears were used to detect menstrual discharge and to examine exfoliative cytology. Vervets were characterized by a menstrual discharge of 1-7 days with cycles of .apprx. 1 mo. when the mother was neither pregnant nor lactating. Sykes' monkey slides did not stain distinctly. There seemed to be a species difference in staining characteristics. Conceptions were irregular; in 1 fertile cycle the menstrual discharge occurred for 2-6 days. Mean number 7 days between births was 337.9 for the vervet and 413 for the Sykes' monkey. The copulatory behavior of both species is described.
